What Is Death?

by Etan Boritzer, Illustrated by Nancy Forrest

This sensitive book introduces children to the various concepts of death, grief and loss. Using a gentle and comforting tone with an honest, down-to-earth approach, the book addresses children’s natural curiosity about one of life’s gratest mysteries. Reflecting on themes of tolerance and understanding for various world customs and beliefs related to death and dying, children will receive a message of hope and encouragement to embrace life.

"...a formidable challenge, handled with assurance, honest and caring from beginning to end."
& Today’s Librarian

"Inspirational in the best sense and exceptionally readable... For people of all ages, it is a gem to be treasured."
& Dr. Earl A. Grollman, author of Living When a Loved One Has Died
